Admissions FAQ


  • Is financial aid available?

    Yes, for the 2017-2018 school year, nearly a third (32.4%) of all HNA students received some level of aid.

  • Are academic scholarships awarded?

    Yes. A limited number of scholarships, either one-time or renewable, are offered at the time of acceptance, and are based on academic merit as shown by the student’s grades, her scores on the HNA Scholarship/Placement Exam, teacher evaluation, school report, and the contents of her application form. No separate application is required for academic scholarships. Consideration for scholarships requires taking the HNA Scholarship/Placement Exam and timely submission of all application materials.

  • When will I know if my daughter is admitted?

    Decision letters for the Class of 2023 and transfer students applying by the January 9, 2019, deadline will be mailed in February 2019.

  • Is there a wait-list?

    Applicants who meet HNA’s admissions criteria may sometimes be placed on a wait-list in February if the number of qualified applicants exceeds the capacity of the incoming 9th-grade class. Applicants on that wait-list will hear from the school no later than June; those who cannot be accommodated must subsequently re-apply for admission as a transfer student. There are no other wait-lists, such as a wait-list for applications.
